It’s a clever business model, and one we expect to become more popular with time. These stools look like props from Kim Basinger’s boudoir in “Hollywood Confidential.”
John Wimberley special-edition print. This dreamlike image is a custom, archival gelatin/silver print. The price, $295, is surprisingly reasonable; Wimberley’s work sells for much more in galleries.
Barbara Barry for Baker Furniture dining table. Where else but eBay can you buy a table whose retail price is $9,646 for less than $500? This is a graceful, mahogany Art Deco table. Even when you tack on freight shipping, this table is a bargain.
